Thumbnail on Byte

So when you uploads a Byte we can edit the video with a 0.10 sec picture so it acts as a thumbnail for your video. Is that a good or bad thing to do? Let me know…

I feel as though that would turn into clickbait really fast. Instagram does thumbnails, and look at it now. Clickbait everywhere. Dunno how I feel about this.

Agreed. Probably not a good idea.

I’d actually like the ability to choose the thumbnail for the video, but it should be a frame chosen from the video itself (like Instagram) instead of uploading a separate image (like YouTube).

Yes it can be abused, but, it can be abused now if, as you said, you add an image in the first 0.10 seconds of the video. This was done on Vine all the time. So, may as well let us choose which part of the video we want to use as the thumbnail.
